The side discharge allows you to evenly distribute the clippings that act as fertilizer and you do not need to stop along the way to pick up! Mowing speed is also faster on this type of model. However, the side discharge has a slight risk of splashing herbs or stones. Depositing grass clippings on your lawn, which is coarser than the technical mulching does not necessarily make your cosmetic lawn for 2 or 3 days.
2. Catcher - Rear Discharge
The mowers with grass catcher offer better handling and avoid the projection of waste in the beds they bypass. The grass catcher is ideal for people who want to pick up the waste clippings, especially to make compost. The ability of the grass catcher from 200 L to 250 L. Who said said tray empty tray!
